Developed by Cambridge Studios, MediEvil Resurrection is inspired by the myths, characters, and environments of the popular PS one™ franchise, exclusively to PSP. MediEvil Resurrection provides players with an enchanting storyline filled with numerous levels and gameplay locations, supported with various characters, including numerous enemies, weapons, and mini-games that take place in the realm of Gallowmere. In single-player mode, players follow the role of Sir Daniel Fortesque and embark on a series of events to defeat the evil Sorcerer Zarok. During Wi-Fi gameplay via ad-hoc mode, players can compete head-to-head in various arcade-style mini games.
One hundred years have passed since the evil Sorcerer Zarok was defeated at the Battle of Gallowmere, heroically cut down by a mortally wounded Sir Daniel Fortesque. Or at least, that's what the people were told; in fact, poor Sir Daniel Fortesque was a bit of a coward, falling in the very first wave of arrows. Now Zarok has returned, turning day into night, and raising an undead army to conquer the land. As a side effect, Sir Daniel Fortesque also has been resurrected…now, he has the chance to defeat Zarok and in death become the hero he never was in life.
Levels: In MediEvil Resurrection , there are 19 levels and gameplay locations that take place in Gallowmere. In particular:
